Working at a desk all day sucks. I feel chained to my computer. For variety, I stand or kneel (on my BOSU) as I work, but it really doesn't provide what I crave ... MOVEMENT!!!!
As a former, full time fitness instructor, my body is painfully reminding me that it is not happy with my new sedentary job. Although my chiropractor has profited from my inactivity.
The worse part is that the longer I sit, the less motivated I am to move!!!! UGH!!! I actually go home exhausted from sitting all day.
You would think all my years of motivating others would have rubbed off on me. Well you would be wrong. Fortunately, my very patient mentor reminded me of the advice I shared with my own former clients, "start with a walk". So I did.
I do live within walking distance from work - 12 minutes. With an hour for lunch, I have plenty of time to walk, eat and return. It reminds me of those early school days when I came home for lunch. So not only am I getting a great walk to break up my day, I feel younger as I enjoy this old routine. Now how do I convince my boss to revive afternoon naps?
